The action-packed, thrilling sequel to Ryan Graudin's Wolf by Wolf.
There would be blood.
Blood for blood.
Blood to pay.
An entire world of it.
For the resistance in 1950s Germany, the war may be over, but the fight has just begun.
Death camp survivor Yael, who has the power to skinshift, is on the run: the world has just seen her shoot and kill Hitler. But the truth of what happened is far more complicated, and its consequences are deadly. Yael and her unlikely comrades dive into enemy territory to try to turn the tide against the New Order, and there is no alternative but to see their mission through to the end, whatever the cost.
But dark secrets reveal dark truths, and one question hangs over them all: how far can you go for the ones you love?
This gripping, thought-provoking sequel to Wolf by Wolf will grab readers by the throat with its cinematic writing, fast-paced action, and relentless twists.
Blood by Blood is such an amazing book, one of my favorites last year. Here a snippet of what I wrote or you can check my review here.
"Once upon a different time, there was a girl who lived in a kingdom of death. Wolves howled up her arm. A whole pack of them— made of tattoo ink and pain, memory and loss. It was the only thing about her that ever stayed the same. Her story begins on a train."
WOLF BY WOLF is a fast-paced, action-packed, and nearly unputdownable book that manages to make you want to jump up and down and cheer for the heroine Yael. Ryan Graudin asks "What if?" the Axis had won World War II and WOLF BY WOLF answers with a both a thoughtful and highly entertaining read -one I did not want to end!
